Travel to change. Everyone travels for a different reason,whether you have traveled 2 countries or 10,we all have our own unique experiences related to each place. To me the most beautiful thing about travel is to touch a different experience everyday. There is a kind of excitement, uncertainty and surprise about going to a new place. Many tell me they would love to travel like me. They say they love seeing my pictures and the places I visit. They tell me about their dream to travel. They also count out the many reasons why they are not able to,like the concerns of bearing the expense,the responsibilities at home and so on. But trust me when you let go all your limitations and doubts and make the decision, you will find ways to save,scrape and do whatever that gets you going.
I feel travel changes you. It breaks down the monotonous life and brings back adventure and excitement to your life. I urge you to travel, the world is a much bigger place, with so much to explore. In this busy world of paying bills,commuting from one place to another, the hustling traffic, duties towards home and so on we tend to forget how to stop, breathe and take time out for ourselves. We often forget to realize what makes us happy and what is more important to us.
Travel returns you home with so many new memories .The eagerness to work,and to work hard, the excitement about changing your lifestyle. Something in you sparks and believe me that could be the change you are yearning for.
This blog will make you fall in love with Dubrovnik and book your tickets to Croatia instantly.
Croatia turned out to be one of my favorite. Mesmeric is the word that comes to mind after visiting this beautiful place. The old city is declared as one of the world heritage site by UNESCO. It is a kind of place where you can walk around all day long and just get lost with its beauty.The world famous TV series The Game Of Thrones was shot here. It is used to film the exterior shots of KING’S LANDING. Those who were frequent watchers of the series will be able to relate the excitement of visiting this place.
We took a ferry from Hvar Island to Dubrovnik which is around 3 hours journey. This is the easiest and fastest option to reach Dubrovnik and the best part is you get to see the stunning views of the sea and the different breathtaking Islands. Here, I am referring as WE,because I traveled along with a group of friends, we were 5 of us. So now you all can imagine the amount of fun and craziness we had during this holiday.
Dubrovnik is a bustling city with plentiful accommodations. We Chose to stay at APARTMENT BEATRICE, an European styled,spotlessly clean, well decored apartment with an incredible view of the sea from the balcony. It had everything we needed.
Facing the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic sea, Dubrovnik is known for its history and culture,surrounded by impressive stone walls,terracota rooftops,ornate churches, Venetian palazzos, majestic fountains and cobblestone alleys.
As you enter the main walking street of the old town, you will be amazed to see the historic buildings and monuments.The street is fully pedestrianized and there are no vehicles allowed inside the walls. Do not forget to pack a comfortable pair of shoes as the walk can be really long. You will find numerous shops to buy the local products and souvenirs, small alleys with cafes and classy restaurants everywhere you turn. Grab a drink and relax while you watch the world go by. Culture enthusiasts can also enjoy live music with exquisite seafood. Make sure you have a drink at Buza Bar which is nested on the edge of a cliff facing the Adriatic sea.Some Croatian wines come highly recommended.
Sailing,kayaking and yachting fanatics have boundless possibilities to explore here. You can also rent a boat and go island hopping
If you are a party animal like us, you will find many night clubs. The most happening one being the Revelin,situated in a 500 year old medieval fortress. The ambiance, the music and the performers from all over the world will leave you spellbound.
If you wish to visit to another country while in Croatia ,then Montenegro it is. Dubrovnik is close to the borders of Montenegro and Bosnia.We chose to do a day trip to Montenegro which is a Balkan Country surrounded by mountains and beaches along the Adriatic Coast. Yet another place to wear your flip flops, flaunt your bikinis and soak up the sun.
I cannot disagree that Dubrovnik is a beautiful place, I cannot disagree that some of the most beautiful memories were made. I am very sure you will have an amazing holiday here and take back plentiful memories back, like I did too.And the most important thing is enjoy yourself.
